Student Accused Of Killing Cat, Using Organs As Bait
LOGAN, Ohio — A prosecutor expressed frustration Thursday at not being
able to file tougher charges against a college student accused in a
heinous case of animal cruelty.
According to prosecutors, the student killed and mutilated a
stranger's house cat, then used the animal's organs as fishing bait,
10TV's Glenn McEntyre reported.
Humane Society agent Saundra Harvey called it the worst case of animal
abuse she has ever seen.
"He went to a home, went up on the porch, picked up a cat, took it to
his pickup truck, threw it on the ground," Harvey said. "The cat was
meowing; he stomped its head, proceeded to disembowel it, took its
liver and went fishing with it."
The accused, Bryan Able, 18, is a law enforcement student at Hocking
College, McEntyre reported.
